The latest animated TV series from Marvel, ‘What If … ?‘ has undeniably skewed the world of our favorite superheroes as we know it. The series is focused on showing alternate timelines of the Marvel Multiverse – a fancy term for multiple parallel universes. Basically, the show is about what would happen if it did happen in an alternate timeline, hence the title “What If … ?”
On this week’s journey through the multiverse, The Watcher – the show’s enigmatic narrator who looks over the multiverse – takes us on another intriguing route in time. Episode 5 explores what would happen if somehow the world’s mightiest heroes, the Avengers, became zombies.
The Twitter handle of Disney+ Hotstar gave us a glimpse into the outlandish plot with promotional images showing ‘Zombie Captain America’ and ‘Zombie Hawkeye.’ This episode is an adaptation of a popular comic book arc called “Marvel Zombies.”
Just like the previous episodes, the latest zombie-fied episode of ‘What If … ?‘ goes live on Wednesday at 12:30 PM IST. Here’s how you can stream it on Disney+ Hotstar for free.
Steps To Watch ‘What If … ?’ Episode 5 On Disney+ Hotstar For Free
Although Disney+ Hotstar doesn’t offer a free trial for its users, you can still get the OTT service without buying a subscription. This is possible because the Disney+ Hotstar Mobile subscription is available as a bundled perk with network plans you might already have.
Firstly, Reliance Jio and Airtel users can claim a Disney+ Hotstar Mobile membership with a recharge worth ₹499 and above. On the other hand, Vi customers get the same subscription on plans priced at ₹501 and above.
After you’ve done the recharge, you will receive a notification from your respective telecom company confirming your Hotstar perk. Now, you can download the Disney+ Hotstar app from the Play Store or App Store.
Lastly, you need to launch the app and log in using the same phone number you did the eligible recharge on. As soon as you log in, you should be able to stream Marvel’s ‘What If … ?‘ and other trending shows and movies on the platform.
One thing to note here is that the Disney+ Hotstar Mobile subscription is only for smartphones and similar handheld devices. The same won’t work on other platforms such as a desktop or a TV.
A similar plan is available for Verizon users for those in the US, giving them a free Disney+ subscription.
